Pinterest Boards for Education

Pinterest in Education

You were introduced to Pinterest back in November 2011 when Jennifer Waldroop did an introductory post on "Pinning for Pinterest". Now it is time to start following educational boards on Pinterest. Each board offers resources for education. Choose boards as they relate to your field of study or interest. Here's a list of some great boards you may want to start following.

Tip of the Week:

  • It syncs with your device to give you a much easier view of the events listed on your calendar. 
  • Download the app, click on it, and your calendars from your device appear. 
  • The first view is a list view of the days. 
  • Be sure to swipe the screen to the left for the day view...then swipe up or down to switch days.
